Payback sweet for Redding

Tim Redding got his "take that" moment.

The Washington right-hander shut out Houston, the team who originally drafted him and brought him to the majors, over seven innings in a 7-0 Nationals' win.

Redding was part of an Astros' minor league system that was among the game's best in the early part of the decade. It turned out pitcher after pitcher from 1999-2001. Roy Oswalt. Wade Miller. Redding. Carlos Hernandez.

All four were part of the Astros' rotation at once. Only Oswalt remains today. Injuries and inconsistency hampered the other three.

Finally, on Monday, Redding was golden in Houston. The bad news for Astros fans was he wasn't wearing a brick red- and sand-colored uniform.
